Why some Germans are turning to antidepressants
Fort Wayne, Ind.
— Some Germans are using antidepressants instead of their doctors.
The U.S. government has said that it will ban such prescriptions for people in Germany because of concerns about addiction.
German news outlets say the move will cause confusion and a rise in drug abuse.
A recent survey by the state health office found that 1 in 4 Germans are taking antidepressants at some point in their lives.
The survey of about 3,000 people in the state found that people are increasingly turning to drugs like amphetamines, cocaine and alcohol to cope with depression.
German health authorities say that these drugs are more dangerous and dangerous to the brain than antidepressants.
A study published in the American Journal of Psychiatry in April found that an estimated 40 percent of the people surveyed had tried at least one prescription drug in the past year.
A report released by the U.K. Department of Health and Social Care said the government had banned prescription drugs for depression and anxiety in some countries for the first time in more than a decade.
The ban was implemented in March after concerns were raised about the long-term risks of the drugs.
Some Germans who took the drugs also reported using them to help manage stress and cope with stress.
Many people who took these drugs said that they were trying to cope.
The German Health Minister said in an interview with the German newspaper Bild that doctors are doing everything possible to prevent depression.
But the minister said that he did not want to punish patients.
In a letter to doctors, the Health Minister also said that people who take the drugs were not in need of psychiatric care and that they could go on with their lives as they wished.
But some Germans have said that antidepressants are an option for people who want to manage their depression and are not sure whether they should take them.
They say that antidepressants can make the symptoms of depression worse and increase the risk of suicide.
Some people use these drugs because they feel that their depression is getting worse.
Some doctors in Germany are worried that the ban could cause more suicides.
